Despite the tireless efforts of thousands of advocates and law enforcement officers alike, drunk driving continues to be one of America’s deadliest crimes. This operation will be conducted in an effort to reduce the incidence of injuries, death, and property damage associated with the intoxicated driver in this area.  This year the residents of the Southwest Area have endured 121 driving under the influence related, and 1,096 hit and run, traffic collisions.  This checkpoint will educate the community to use designated drivers and not to drink and drive.

Funding for this checkpoint comes from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.  We can all help make our streets safer.  Report Drunk Drivers – Call 9-1-1.
